I will be providing OPFOR for the ODA's during SFAUC at AT in April.

Any recommendations on protective goggles/glasses/face mask to keep from losing an eye or being popped in the trachea?

Hopefully I will get a few of them before they get me.

We will be using M-4's with the carry handles removed. Anyone got an ACOG or EO Tech I can borrow? Hell I will take a flip up rear. :D

You shouldn't have anything to worry about. I hear they fixed all of those overpenetration issues Simunitions used to have.:rolleyes:

LOL, not as of my last drill. Still left a bleeding 1cm sore. I'd wear a cup for sure.

At all of the recent simunitions exercises that I have seen, the participants were wearing a huge helmet/face shield/throat guard thing. I will try to find what they are and where they can be had.

Might be difficult for me to fire my weapon wearing that thing.

All your safety gear should be provided for you!

I would highly recommend getting a flight suit though, to wear over your uniform.

Roger Sarn't.

Its at Ft McClellan. I wont be there the entire 3 weeks, but will be there part of the time. Too bad you wont be coming down. It is supposed to be some great training from the information I have heard/been privy to.

Guy:

I will be sure to pack a flightsuit. Thanks for the heads up.

One of the SGTs at SFAUC was trying to recuit me to go TDY for 2-3 months as OPFOR and staff at SFAUC. I almost did it but I cant miss that much of my medic classes in school. Would have loved to been there to get the osmosis training and the trigger time.

We just came off a two week sim and live killhouse ex down in the US of A.

While the uppers and lowers were ours we drew MILES (yeah odd but wait) and sim gear from the Base.

We used MILES and SIMUNITION together - the MILES worked well for the longer ranges and the sims good for inside the houses. Not a 100% solution but better than the systems in isolation.

We were provided with SIM helmet and neck screen, Neck Guard, Elbow and Knee Pads, and a JOCK.

The Elbow and Knee pads (most guys have their own) were optional but BASE safety required the rest to be worn - we had done this previously with only our helmets and Bolle gogles, and as well with our Helmets and a Paintball type front face mask.
